Oh, and I went to the After work thingy last night.
I spoke to one girl who's moving to England to work in August. Then she's going to Scotland to study drama. She wants to be a playwright or a literary manager. I really wanted to talk more to her, but apparently she didn't want to talk to me. Or so it seemed. So I ended up sitting with a few other people, dicussing sexuality. And it was so..... boring. I don't know if it was because they are a bit younger than me but really. I mean really, do they really think they're edgy and cool and all open-minded for saying they could probably have sex with a girl? That everyone is probably more or less bi?
It's like... I don't want to sound conceited but I felt like I was listening to a discussion I could have had when I was 13. That's when those things were possibly slightly controversial to me. And I don't know what it's like in Britain or the US but here it's so incredibly common to label yourself as bi, thinking it's edgy. I don't know. I just don't think it's a big deal. I mean, in order for people to think that being bi is edgy there has to be a bit of "danger" or controversy in saying so, for them. And I just don't think so. I've never, ever found homosexuality in any way offensive or weird.
Maybe it's because I'm in the **music world** where virtually every male opera singer is gay and half of the girls in the brass section has a girlfriend.
